(let ((B (make-overlay (point) (1+ (point))))
      (A (make-overlay (point) (1+ (point)))))
  (overlay-put B 'before-string "B")
  (overlay-put A 'after-string "A"))

should get you two overlays covering one character with "B" appearing
before and "A" after the character.  Deleting that character will cause
the overlays to change places resulting in something like "AB".
